Bottom Line:   
I had a chance to get these cheapish on e-bay to replace my Gale Satellite 10's as I'd always hankered after dipoles for better dispersal. These Wharfedales didn't disappoint. Used with my Denon 1507 - although they sound laid-back - the effect is more subtle. The rear sounds are more 'enveloping' than in your face - highlighting what needs to be and leaving the rest where it should be. The treble isn't sharp enough for you to notice the rears working and the bass doesn't take over even in the loudest of scenes. The sound is less insistant than some other makes which can initially sound detailed and sharper but which are tiring and strident after a while. The quality of build is excellent and while some of the colour schemes might not appeal to some, my Maple versions blend in with the room's other wooden features well. The keyhole fitting on the rear is great for simple placement on the wall - just the usual fiddling with depth so that the speaker sits right. All in all a good all-rounder and 100 watts rms to boot!.

true bipoles, no low bass, trebble pretty laid back (well, typical english speakers), top treble could be better (especially the center). Good build quality

Bottom Line:   
I bought four of these for my Yamaha RX-V1500 7.1 to use as surrounds and rear surrounds. I have since wall-mounted and calibrated them, and they sound and look absolutely amazing, espcially for speakers in this price range. Watching "Master & Commander" proved an experience in virtual reality as surround sounds were coming at me in the sweet spot from places where no speakers are even located (product of the bipoles). I've an upstairs, and when people would run across the deck of the ship topside in the movie, I literally thought I had people running around on my second floor. The sound was that directional, coming in straight down from my ceiling, even though my speakers are wall mounted. Further, they sound wonderful, with good range and incredible imaging. These speakers are superb, for twice the price. As it would appear Wharfedale is discontinuing them, run, don't walk, to grab a couple, four! At $89.99 per pair, you just cannot go wrong!
